Players from eight state schools invited to NFL Combine

NC State leads the way with six invitations while Duke has three heading to the league's annual predraft evaluation event in Indianapolis

  Players from eight North Carolina schools, including six from NC State, have been invited to participate in the NFL’s predraft Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this month.

  Heading the list of local talent scheduled to show off their talents in front of representatives of all 32 teams is the large contingent of former Wolfpack stars — center Garrett Bradbury, quarterback Ryan Finley, wide receivers Kelvin Harmon and Jacobi Meyers, offensive lineman Tyler Jones and linebacker Germaine Pratt.

  Duke will be represented by quarterback Daniel Jones, linebacker Joe Giles-Harris and tight end Daniel Helm of the Blue Devils while UNC and Wake Forest had two players each invited,

according to the list released by the NFL on Thursday. They are defensive end Malik Carney and offensive lineman William Sweet of the Tar Heels; and wide receiver Greg Dortch and offensive lineman Phil Haynes of the Deacons.

 Rounding out the list of state talent at the annual skills evaluation camp, are Appalachian State running back Jalin Moore, NC A&T defensive end Darryl Johnson, Charlotte offensive lineman Nate Davis and Elon offensive lineman Oli Udoh.

  There are several notable omissions from the list of state players invited to the Combine, including UNC receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams, East Carolina receiver Trevon Brown and Appalachian State defensive back Clifton Duck.

  The Combine will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts, from Feb. 26-March 4.
